Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

Wireless adapter My Xbox 360 adapter flashes red once when plugged into my console and does not work. I unplugged it and tried another USB port (on my computer) to see if it was a power supply from the console or the adapter. When plugged into the computer, the adapter light stayed on - orange. There is only one usb port on my console, I have read to try another port on the console but can't find one. Thanks in advance for any help, Cody

Older XBox 360 with wireless antenna - can't connect to network - why not?


What color does your wireless adapter (xbox) turn when you power on your xbox? Green, Red, or Grey (No light)?

If it's grey(no light), try connecting the adapter into one of the USB ports in front of the console(the usb ports are behind that flap)

If it's red, it's a hardware problem and you should try and repair it.. or replace it (xbox antenna).

If it's green, then it's something to do with your network settings.

Good Luck

IF The LIGHT IS FLASHING GREEN then there is something wrong with your wireless network
Check your network settings and Retry connecting



Check the adapter's status light loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); The adapter's status light can tell you a lot about the state that the adapter is in. Here's what the different lights mean:
  • Steady green light: The adapter is connected to a wireless router, gateway, or access point. The adapter is ready to use.

  • Steady red light: The adapter is not recognized. Try plugging the adapter into a USB port on the front of the Xbox 360 console.
  • Flashing green: The adapter is attempting to connect to a wireless network.
  • Flashing red light: There is a problem. The adapter might be experiencing a hardware failure. Contact Xbox support at http://www.xbox.com/support/contact (http://www.xbox.com/support/contact) .
  • No light: The adapter is not receiving power. Unplug the USB connector and plug it in again. Still no light? Try plugging the adapter into a USB port on the front of the console

  2. Select Network Settings.
  3. Select Configure Network.

How to setup xbox live


To set up the connection via a router unplug the router and the modem and turn off the 360. Connect an Ethernet cable to one of the out ports of the preexisting router then connect the cord to the back of your 360. Plug everything back in and turn and give the modem and router about 3 minutes to reboot.

Once you have given everything a few minutes to reboot you can turn the 360 back on. If you have already set up a gamer profile you will see the Xbox Live screen. If you have not set up an account you will be prompted to do so. All you need to do is follow the on screen instructions. It is a pretty cut and dry process and should not take more than 10 minutes of your time.
If you want to go wireless or you must go wireless you will need to get the Xbox360 wireless network adapter. The adapters are available at most stores that sell 360 games or you can order it online. Once you have the adapter unplug any Ethernet cable you might have plugged into the 360 then clip the Network adapter to the back of the 360. It is really easy to see where it belongs, but just in case, the adapter will sit right alongside the USB port which is right above the Ethernet port. Once you have clipped it in plug the USB cable that is attached to the adapter into the port on the Xbox 360. Flip up the antenna that is laying flat against the adapter and you are set, well almost set.

Turn on the 360 and head into the System tray. You will see Network options, go ahead into that screen and follow it through to the "Edit Settings" subcategory. The Network name should appear on a list of available networks. Select your network and enter the password, if there is a password. Exit out and you should be ready to play.

My Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless Network Adapter stopped working.


Shut off your console and unplug everything.

Connect the adapter then connect the console back together...Turn on console......Go to network configuration...Make sure u are connecting the adapter from the back!

If you are not able to achieve a connection for several attempts this means your should check warranty status for the adapter also.........If you unplugged it while the console was one you could of shocked the cable an blew the fuse.......Normally when u detach any components with a usb port u should alway make sure every thing is shut off before so.

Wireless 360 Network Adapter won't turn red


This can actually happen quit a bit but it sounds to me like the usb jack may be dieing or not producing enough power. This can be caused if for instance you use wired controllers. Have you tried using the front usb ports.

Msg on xbox says ''not connected''


sure, the usb port must be the back port, when you plug it in the light on the wireless adapter should be red. Once you turn the xbox on, the wireless should turn green. Go to test xbox live->test xbox live->edit settings-> the wireless settings should be at the bottom (the 3rd one down) click on it, (here if you have a password for your network insert the password. -> (press b to back out once) and test xbox live again. It should work if it doesn't please let me know, i'm doing the settings off the top of my head.
Hope it works.
